Cheryl Cole yet to pull V Festival show despite illness

It's not probably on her list of priorities just now, but Cheryl Cole is yet to cancel her V Festival performance, despite being diagnosed with malaria.

The Girls Aloud singer, who is currently receiving specialist care at University College London for the disease, is due to play the Hylands Park event on Saturday 21 August before heading to Weston Park a day later (22 August).

"V Festival has not been informed by Cheryl Cole's management that she will not be appearing at this year's festival,” said a spokesperson for the festival, "Unless otherwise informed, organisers are expecting her to appear as planned and wish her a speedy recovery."

Headlining this year’s festival are King of Leon and Kasabian, with plenty of other bands already confirmed, including Stereophonics, Faithless, The Prodigy and Pet Shop Boys.
